Evidence shows that CPR buys time. Many lives could be saved if CPR was used within three to four minutes of a heart attack. CPR is also useful in situations such as drownings, electrocutions, drug overdoses, shock and traffic accidents. This project describes the new standards of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), being the result of the World Health Organization used in the training of health volunteers and public health personnel in December, 2004. The purpose of this project is to teach cardiac arrest assessment and demonstrate the effective basic life support in the community. Forty nine participants including thirty three (67.35%) health volunteers and sixteen (32.65%) public health personnel in Bang Pa-In District, Ayutthaya Province were enrolled and took the 10-question pre-test before the intervention done. The intervention comprised a lecture giving, videotape display, and CPR step-by-step demonstration. The achieved success of the project for knowledge in CPR was evaluated by comparing pre- and post- test and participating in a return demonstration. The outcome of the project found that 45 (91.84%) post-test were returned. The mean scores of pre- and post- test were 4.47 and 7.80 with standard deviation (S.D.) 1.85374 and 1.81659, respectively. The difference of pre- and post- test was statistically significant (Paired T-test, P-value < 0.001). The project revealed that only 20 (40.82%) participants including 15 of 33 (45.45%) health volunteers and 5 of 16 (31.25%) public health personnel have experienced the CPR return demonstration. The ratio of health volunteers and public health personnel in a return demonstration was (75% : 25%). The safety of our patients and quality of emergency service in the community will improve significantly.
